Heisman Trophy winner and NFL legend Herschel Walker testified against the Democrats’ proposal to establish a commission to study and develop reparations proposals in the United States, citing his faith and telling the lawmakers that “we use black power to create white guilt.”
The Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties convened virtually on Wednesday to discuss H.R. 40, or Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee’s (D-TX) Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African Americans Act.
“This is what this hearing is about — to be able to speak to the nation and for the nation to continue its overwhelming support that it has given to H.R. 40. And that has been one of the comforting aspects of continuing to carry this legislation,” Jackson Lee said at the start of the hearing, describing it as an “active commission” designed to study and “develop reparation proposals.”
